I haven't, but seen it done once when we were shooting MP5's at the same time as Glock 22's. Some 9mm made it into the Glock 22.

Just for goofs I dropped a 5.56 blank down the barrel of my 1911, pointed it up in the air and pulled the trigger. I didn't really think it would work.

Damn thing went off and so did my Plt Sgt.

I bought a cheap box of American Eagle .308 at a local shop to zero my new scope with, and found a round of .243 mixed in there at the range. Luckily I noticed it before I loaded it.

I took it back to my LGS and showed the owner, who figured out what happened. A guy had bought a box of that stuff earlier in the week, and then returned it a few days later. We checked all the other boxes and all were well.

I don't think he takes returns on ammo anymore either.

I'm fairly certain I shot a 40s&w out of my p220 45acp ..

It was an idpa match. I had loaded my mags real quick out of a bag of reloads. Later on I caught a 40 in the bag and was like wtf? Thought back and I had a really light round that caused a FTE after it. Plus it sounded weird - but I knew the projectile hit, specifically low.

Needless to say it was the last time I used reloads that aren't mine.


Not 100% sure it was a 40. Didn't find the brass nor did I even bother looking. But I'm pretty positive over all.


Of course the age old 380 through a 9mm.

I had a guy chamber a 9mm in my .45.

Luckily that just does nothing.

I shot nearly 100 rounds of 45 GAP out of my Glock 21. No malfunctions. I only noticed when I looked down and saw two different sizes of brass (both ACP and GAP).

a 10mm round made it into a 1911 mag. I knew right away something was off because the report was much quieter and recoil was light. It gave me an FTE that I slipped out with my pocketknife blade. All was well.

I thought you could shoot LR in a Mag but not the other way around??

Don't know.......just thought.

Should be fine in a revolver. Same difference with shooting 38 special in a 357 mag.



Not really.
.22 LR uses a heeled bullet, WMR does not.


And the base diameter on the 22 mag is a lot larger, it is a tapered case.

Accidentally shot a .40 round through my 45. I knew something was wrong as soon as I heard the shot. The gun was fine. The casing was a little bloated.

Had to use a rod to push the bullet out, but no permanent damage. The gun has taken several deer since then.

.270 out of a .284 shouldnt require a rod to free a bullet. Now if it was a 7mm out of a .270 then yeah, I get it

Yep....dummy me was on the range shooting my Glock 19 and 22 on the same trip. Loaded a couple of 9mm rounds in the .40. It fired, but of course sounded very strange. I knew immediately what I'd done. No blood, no foul, but I am much more careful now.

I haven't done it.

I'm surprised that the mention of the guy that shot a 300 blackout round in his 223 hadn't came up (could be the other way around)
The gun went kaboom.

.380 in a 9mm works well enough that if I were in the French resistance, it wouldn't have bothered me a bit.

Might not work so well out of a Sten though.

Yep, I shot a 9mm out of an XD40 one time. Just sounded funny and didn't cycle. Ejected the case and saw a very deformed and fucked up 9mm case. The gun was fine. No matter how careful you are, it's so damned easy to mess up when you've got similar guns/ammo out on the bench at the same time.

Shot one .380 round through a 9mm Shield rental gun. When it didn't cycle, I discovered my mistake. TheN I totally put away the .380 ammo I had been shooting through my daughter's TCP.

Not going to lie ... when I take both the G17 and the PPS .40 to the range, I make sure to keep things separated.

They are readily discernible rounds if you're paying attention. So I pay attention.
